Confirmed Newcastle team v Southampton – Muto, Shelvey, Kenedy all start and Rondon on bench

3 years ago

The Newcastle team v Southampton has just been confirmed.

Rafa Benitez looking to get his first victory of the season.

Salomon Rondon has been passed fit and is back in the squad but not the team.

Not the biggest surprise, both because he may not be fully fit and Rafa tending not to throw previously injured players straight back into the team as starters.

At least we have that option on the bench that could potentially improve the team.

Ki comes in from the cold amongst the subs after being ignored for even bench duties in recent matches.

This is who Rafa Benitez starts with:

Dubravka, Yedlin, Lascelles, Fernandez, Dummett, Kenedy, Ritchie, Shelvey, Diame, Muto, Perez

and the Subs:

Darlow, Manquillo, Schar, Atsu, Ki, Rondon, Joselu
